FORMULA

a(n) = A232162(n) + A232162(n-1) + A232162(n-2).

a(n) = a(n-1)+a(n-2)+3*a(n-3)+a(n-4). G.f.: -x*(2*x^2+x+1) / (x^4+3*x^3+x^2+x-1). - Colin Barker, Jan 01 2014

EXAMPLE

For n=8, a(8) = A232162(8) + A232162(7) + A232162(6) = 139+62+30 = 231.

MAPLE

r:=proc(n::nonnegint)

if n=0 then return 0:

elif n=1 then return 0:

elif n=2 then return 2:

elif n=3 then return 3:

else return

r(n-1)+r(n-2)+3*r(n-3)+r(n-4):

end if;

end proc:

a:=proc(n::nonnegint)

if n=0 then return 0:

elif n=1 then return 1:

else return

r(n)+r(n-1)+r(n-2):
